The Many Faces of Imprisonment
26 April 2010
172 Allen Street, NYC
What does mass incarceration have to do with immigrant detention and the War on Terror?
How are these all different names of the same repression?
Join Laura Whitehorn (former political prisoner and editor of The War Before by Safiya Bukhari), Victoria Law (author of Resistance Behind Bars: The Struggles of Incarcerated Women), Jeanne Theoharis (Professor of Political Science and co-founder of Educators for Civil Liberties) and Ravi Ragbir and Marlon Peterson (Families for Freedom) for a discussion on the many faces of imprisonment.
